Credit denied for third line

Glad, I suppose, to see from others' posts that my failure to get approval for financing special offer of $300 off a Pixel 4XL was apparently not due to my credit rating (> 800), as the Comcast customer service rep suggested.  Phone would be third on my Xfinity account -- the other two owned by my daughter and son-in-law who live with me.  Was planning to switch my own wireless phone service from Google Fi to Xfinity and was shocked when told at Xfinity store that I could buy phone for full price ($1,000) but could not get advertised deal of $700 with monthly payments.  As a long-time (> 20 years) Comcast cable customer paying more than $300/month for cable and Internet, I can't understand why I can't get financing for a phone.   Google Fi will gladly finance a phone for me, and their service is great, so I guess I'll have to wait for the next deal on the Pixel from them and stick with their service.
